The current Ford F-150 is a great looking truck that was won fans across North America. It is currently Ford’s best-selling vehicle and it is no wonder. The shape and design is modern and precise without being too chunky or masculine. Will the 2018 Ford F-150 continue that?
 
The recently unveiled 2018 Ford F-150 shows a new design and also hides other innovations. All designed to further widen the truck’s appeal and cement its place as the best seller, if it needed cementing any further.

The first noticeable change is the grille up front. The model we saw showed a twin horizontal bar running across the centre and into the ‘C’ type headlights at either side. It’s a subtle styling change that makes a big visual impact. The hood and fenders feature subtle differences too that lead them to look much tighter.
 
At the back, a new tailgate will reflect the truck’s trim level while the same LED taillights continue to feature. A set of new alloy wheel designs are also expected at release to further differentiate the new from the old.
 
The 2018 Ford F-150 also brings with it some new engine options. A new 3.3-litre V6 gasoline engine will replace the current 3.5-litre V6 for the same power output. The 2.7-litre EcoBoost V6 is being replaced with a second generation model with direct injection. The 5.0-litre V8 also sees the love with some tweaks to improve gas mileage and power output.
 
Finally, the 2018 Ford F-150 will also gain a diesel option. It will likely be the 3.0-litre Power Stroke turbocharged V6 diesel we have seen in other vehicles but it has yet to be confirmed. The current ten speed transmission remains too. Auto stop/start will be standard across the range to further improve fuel economy.
 
The apparent plans for a hybrid F-150 are still in development with a provisional release of 2020.
 
Ford said they spent a lot of time talking to and spending time with current F-150 owners to see just how the trucks were used. They say everything they have learned has been put into the 2018 Ford F-150. 
 
With a potential release date of Fall 2017, we don’t have long to wait until we get to see the 2018 Ford F-150. In the meantime, the 2017 model still has a lot to offer if you can get hold of one. They really are selling fast!
